Fiction editing and proofreading for self-publishing and independent authors of fantasy, paranormal romance, children's and young adult fiction.
Have you finished writing your novel? Interested in self-publishing? Maybe you're anxious about the process and don't know where to start?
Don't worry, help is at hand.
Hello, I’m Louise Pearce and I’m dedicated to helping independent authors make the most of their writing.
I offer copyediting and proofreading to authors of fantasy, paranormal romance, children's and young adult fiction.
I've worked in schools for several years teaching students how to improve their reading and writing skills. My passion for fiction has finally led me into novel editing and proofreading.
I took an in-depth proofreading course with The Publishing Training Centre (PTC), qualifying with a merit, and joined the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP).
Further training includes:
Proofreading Digital Skills: PTC
Grammar at Work: PTC
Proofreading 2 Progress: SfEP
As a freelance fiction copyeditor and proofreader, it's my job to help improve and polish your writing so your reader remains deeply absorbed in your story. Along with checking standard punctuation, spelling and grammar for consistency and accuracy, I'll help make your sentences flow so your story can shine through.
I edit with sensitivity, but I'll be gently honest, and I'll make suggestions where I think things could be improved. I use Track Changes and Comments in Microsoft Word, so you can easily choose the editorial suggestions you wish to accept or reject allowing you to keep control of your novel.
I offer a free no-obligation sample edit of up to 1,000 words as standard. This will give you a good idea of what to expect and if my editing style fits your manuscript.
